Of course Bente Skari is my fave in cross country along with Petra Majdic from Slovenia.

I never heard Raphael speak Norwegian but I bet it's cute.

How do you cheer in Norwegian? How do you say Go Thomas!
we just say Heia *** in your case, Heia Thomas!!!

On the one hand, I'm very happy that she's managed to move on with her life, and even find a person to share it with Finding love twice in a lifetime is very, very difficult, especially when you are living with the memory of your greatest love.

On the other hand, I'm still a bit surprised. At the beginning of her book, she was talking about how she felt losing Sergei was her punishment for having an "easy life" I just thought she was going to raise Daria by herself and live with her memories.

I guess if I had known when it actually happened I wouldn't be quite as shocked as I am. So I'm torn between being happy for her and being a bit angry. I'm sure the latter will go away soon enough

She's one classy lady and really dedicated to figure skating. All the others in US seemed only want to gain fame and fortune.

Yes, congrats to Michael von Grunigen! I was really happy he won.

But I'm especially excited Eric Schlopy finished 5th. He's back!

The results are not out yet so I'll post them tomorrow.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Today's men's cross-country race was a huge disappointment.

No Scandinavians on the podium!

My faves Alsgaard and Estil finished 16th and 24th respectively.

The big names really underperformed today. I hope they pick up their form soon.

havent you heard? the norwegian camp is having a bit problem now..... after some drugs accusations and shit. But the ppl who have accused the norwegians for doping have taken their accusations back. but like Thomas Alsgaard said; the damage is already done.
no the whole world think the norwegians have cheated....
